31 Days Review: Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines (2012)

Wrong Turn 5 is easily the worst in the WT series, and it's sad to see just how bad this movie is on just about every level.

The first Wrong Turn is one of our modern day faves. Its sequels have been pretty bad, though we could easily say that they've been fun none the less. Parts 2 & 3 were cheap sequels that didn't do much for us either way. Part 4, at least, was a blood-soaked good time. With part 5, however, it's officially time for them to stop with this series.

Were the mongoloid cannibals wearing masks this time? Sure looks like they said to hell with FX, and bought some masks at the local Piggly Wiggly to me. The movie felt campy; from its poorly-conceived script to the bad acting, all the way down to excessive gore, which somehow felt like it was a parody of itself.

Fans of the Wrong Turn series who just want to see the crazy kill scenes and don't care about anything else will be fine with this new entry. Everyone else will shake their heads in disbelief, and then forget this movie 2 minutes after it ends. If they even make it through the whole thing.


At least the girls in this one were hot...
